Compassion for self, compassion for others

  |   Continuing Education, Uncategorized

We know that veterinarians are some of the most compassionate providers in all of healthcare.  But did you know that by cultivating more self-compassion, it can bolster your own mental health as well as help the compassionate way you work with your clients and patients? Washington Physician’s Health Program (WPHP) is hosting a one-day workshop in Seattle based on Stanford University’s 8-week Compassion Cultivation Training program. This workshop combines traditional contemplative practices with contemporary psychology and scientific research. Through instruction, exercises, guided mindfulness meditation, and in-class interaction, participants will learn how to strengthen qualities of compassion, empathy, and kindness for themselves and others.  Learn how to intentionally choose compassionate thoughts and actions and develop skills that help you relate to yourself and others with more resilience. For more information and to register, visit WPHP’s registration website.
